At the gate of the academy, at the south gate to the academy gate must go through, a small, easy to be ignored, but a long history.
Baoqing Temple Huata is located in the ancient city of Xi'an Yongning Gate, adjacent to the famous Shuyuan Street and Guanzhong College, it is the Xi'an area of the few remaining Tang and Song Dynasty on-the-ground cultural relics, Baoqing Temple has no, but the Huata still stands.
Originally was going to the street to visit the College,I can't imagine seeing an ancient tower at the entrance,Originally this is Baoqing Temple Tower.The original Baoqing Temple was built in the Sui Dynasty,Now destroyed,Baoqing Temple Tower was built in the Tang Dynasty,Repeatedly destroyed,Existing buildings should be for Ming and Qing Dynasty,For the key cultural relics protection units in Shaanxi Province.
This pagoda has a history of 1,000 years. The Hua Pagoda of Baoqing Temple is located on the north side of the academy gate in the south gate of Xi'an today. Tang Wenzong used five-color bricks to make the tower in the temple, so Baoqing Temple is also called Huata Temple. In the Five Dynasties, the palace was destroyed by fire, but the tower remained. In the second year of Ming Jingtai (1451), the tower was moved and the temple was built at this site. Feng Congwu gave lectures during the Wanli period (1573-1620). In the first year of Yongzheng (1723), the resident monk Wentian rebuilt the pavilion. The Hua Pagoda of Baoqing Temple is about 23 meters high and has seven floors. It is hexagonal in plan and contains stone sculptures of Buddha from the Wei, Sui, Tang and other eras. In the second year of Mingjing (1451), he rebuilt the stone monument. After the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the government renovated the Hua Pagoda of Baoqing Temple, which is a key protection unit in Shaanxi Province.
